Like a Girl
When you ask me to run like a girl and then watch me toss my fluffy hands in the dramatic air
without purpose, and
you are asking me to deny my strength and to superficially take up space.
I know I am strong and can fight and jump and hit like a girl, and that what that looks like is beauty, not fake.
accomplishment in my eyes,
it means the ability to not deny the intensity and determination that lives inside.
Incredibly and with agility since I first learned to stretch out my body
Do not mock or mimic or minimize my truth by making doing anything #likeagirl a joke or spoof.
I roar. I shine. I am me, and I will continue to be proud to live and love
Like a Girl!
